All anime fans in the house give me a loud cheer! We have some news for you! We are bringing you the latest updates for Fate/Grand Order: Zettai Majuu Season 2 including its release date, facts, plot and more.
A.D. 2016, the foundations of humanity have been incinerated by the Mage King Solomon. Chaldea, a secret mages organization with the mission to preserve humanity’s future, foresaw mankind’s extinction in 2015. Thus commenced the operation to repair the Singularities in history caused by Holy Grails dispersed across time and space—Operation Grand Order.
Using the Rayshift time travel technology, Chaldea’s last master Ritsuka Fujimaru and his demi-servant Mash Kyrielight have traveled to and resolved six Singularities.
Now, they depart for their most dangerous destination yet: a civilization in the Age of Gods, B.C. 2655 Mesopotamia. Ritsuka and Mash soon discover that Demonic Beasts roam the land, attacking people and towns. Amidst chaos and terror lies humanity’s last defense—Uruk, a fortress city that acts as the frontline for the battle against the beasts.
The battlefront is commanded by none other than King Gilgamesh, the King of Heroes, who sought aid from Heroic Spirits and took on the role of a mage to protect his city.
Fate Grand Order Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
‘Fate/Grand Order’ was first introduced through a one-episode special which premiered on August 4, 2019. This was then followed by the first season of the anime which released on October 5, 2019, and with a total of 21 episodes, it finished airing on March 21, 2020. Despite being a side story of the original ‘Fate’ series, most anime viewers have received it really well so far.
When it comes to its second season, the good news for all the fans of the show is that the original game’s “The Grand Temple of Time Solomon story”, which serves as the final singularity in the game’s first installment, will now get an anime adaptation titled ‘Fate / Grand Order-Shrine Time Solomon-‘.
An official date for this has not been released yet, but we can expect it to premiere sometime in October 2020. This news has also been confirmed on the official website of the anime and was also posted on the anime’s official Twitter account.
Even the closing scene of the 21st episode of ‘Fate/Grand Order: Zettai Majuu Sensen’ confirms this.
Another good news is that the ‘Fate’ series still has a lot to offer and a sequel movie, titled ‘Fate/stay night: Heaven’s Feel 3 Spring Song,’ for the original series is now underway.
In an interview for Newtype magazine, CloverWorks producer Yūichi Fukushima stated that while the anime adaptation doesn’t cover the beginning of the video game, it will be accessible even to those who don’t play the game. Shizuka Kurosaki said also that “Think of each adaptation as a different take on Chaldea and the Singularity. You don’t need to watch the TV series before the films.”
